DEVELOPMENT OF METHODOLOGY FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF BART'S IMPACTS UPON ECONOMICS AND FINANCE RESEARCH PLAN

This is a research plan for the Economics and Finance Project, one of the six major components of the BART Impact Program, a comprehensive, policy-oriented study and evaluation of the impacts of the San Francisco Bay Area's new rapid transit system. The Economics and Finance Project will determine the impacts of the construction of BART, the transportation service it provides, and the bond issues and taxes that finance it, on the regional economy and on specific economic sectors. It will also assess impacts on employment, productivity, business activity, the cost of public borrowing, public willingness to incur debt for other purposes, and the distribution of tax burdens among socioeconomic sectors of the population. In the Research Plan, one or more work elements are defined for each of the enumerated factors. The discussion of each element includes a description of a model of the determinants of the impact, expectations as to measurability of the impacts, a consideration of alternative study methodologies, and a recommendation of a preferred methodology.
